About us

EFA is a network of 23 member organisations from across Europe with the collective goal of working together to raise fundraising standards.

Our vision

Together we represent the European fundraising community with one voice, one collective body and one shared goal of facilitating better fundraising. EFA aims to strengthen and develop the fundraising profession across Europe.

Our mission

EFA’s mission is to develop fundraising across Europe by strengthening national fundraising associations and national fundraising organisations, and to promote fundraising, philanthropy and the work of not for profit organisations at the EU level. EFA serves as a platform and a collective voice for its members.

Who we are

EFA itself is led by a volunteer board. Executive Officer Denise Dawes co-ordinates EFA's day-to-day work programme.

Full membership of EFA is open to associations representing individual fundraisers and those for fundraising organisations. Observer status is available to representatives from nations where no fundraising association has yet been established.

Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
